Re: Why buy a brand new $150,000 sailboat?

Thanks to those that buy new boats. This way others can have nice used boats. I don't begrudge anyone for buying a new boat; in fact i envy them at times. When i win the power ball i'll get my custom boat.

Sometimes it makes sense. I met a couple from NYC in a new 57 footer ($840k). They did the math. A new house in NYC, $800k; taxes $25k(or more). It was about the same to live on a new boat on the water! Of course it didn't hurt that they had some money as well.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Re: Why buy a brand new $150,000 sailboat?

Everything is relative to our own expenses. If I were a rich man I would have the best equipment available. But I am not a rich man so I got the best I could. C&C30 MK1 built in 1981 I had to put an engine in her and a bunch of other work. Mostly time but money too. But I have sailed her 27 times now in 19 months. No one in my marina takes there boat out as much as I do. No one spends as much time with their boats as I do with mine. I am in love with the whole process.
I got her on the cheap at first. But she was not free buy any means. In this process I have learned her’ every nook and cranny. I know the power she has now. I installed the engine myself. I know how hard it is to get the shift linkage set right. I know the stuffing box well. The cutlass bearing was rebuilt. It’s a labor of love. I would never know a new boat as I know this boat. My love affair has a flavor that is real. Not like something you would ever fine “buying new”.
We have had a chance to fall in love. I know her and she knows me. She and I will be together for life.
To each his own "NEW/USED" for me it’s a no brainer...
See ya on the water.
